investigation itself. listen, this was not barack obama's ambassador, it wasn't the democratic ambassador, it wasn't the republican ambassador. it was the american ambassador. this was a terrorist attack against the united states of america that took the life of our u.s. ambassador, and three very distinguished embassy employees. americans deserve is truth. what happened? the reason that's so important isn't for the political fodder, it may or may not make in the next three weeks, but this is serious business. if you look at what happened in kenya and tunisa with the bombings there -- or tanzania, excuse me. and then you have the uss cole in december, what happened with the 9/11 commission, they went back and said, what happened when there wasn't any response, al qaeda made the interpretation that it's okay to be more aggressive, and then you had 9/11 that following year. so this is important for two reasons. one, i think the americans have the right to know it was their ambassador that was killed. there was certainly misinformation flowing and i think political interpretation

across well. he called shannon o'brien unbecoming. that felt odd to people too. if obama can get under romney's skin, then romney kind of can falter himself. >> well, at least he didn't say she wasn't lady like because that's getting heat too in the press these days. let me ask you something about the strategy of governor romney before he was governor romney, and that was something they called workdays where mitt romney decided to spend some time working as a blue collar worker like the rest of us. he was selling sausages at fenway park? he worked as a garbage man, and he was fixing cars too. but we haven't really seen that this time around. and yet that was a successful strategy back then. >> yeah. i mean they sort of recognize his wealth was sort of an issue and barrier with voters. one of the questions in the polls was asked which candidate cares for people like you and only 18% said mitt romney. and six weeks before the election. so it's a similar thing he's failed on a national level. people don't feel like he cares about people like them. they haven't done quite as much to mitiga

politics, it's your pat answer. but given the evangelical vote is so important to both barack obama and mitt romney, what do you say to your flock when they come and see you and say look, joel, i can't work out who to vote for, what do you say to them? >> well, piers, i just go back to a central theme of encouraging everybody to vote, to search their own heart, because it's interesting, good people of faith can read the scripture and interpret it differently. i have democrats and republicans in our church that love the lord, you know, that couldn't be any better people but they just, you know, different issues speak to them. >> the president, though, is a conventional christian. mitt romney is a mormon. and there are fundamental differences. the holy trinity definition in both is very, very different. the mormons beeve there are the father, son and holy spirit. obviously, the christian faith believes they're all the same thing. how do you deal with that? surely your natural leaning would be towards the guy that believes the same that you do. >> i think you're right in that instance.

to go out with a bang after hearing this warning yesterday from president obama. >> make no mistake, nuclear-armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained, it would threaten the elimination of israel, the security of gulf nations and the stability of the global economy. and that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> cnn foreign affairs report alice is here with us this morning. good morning. this is one of the most anticipated speeches of the u.n. in no small part because he's considered a loose cannon. do we have any idea what he's going to say today. >> the rhetoric is heating up between the israelis and iran and talk about a possible iran strike on the nuclear program. i think he's going to double-down on the ante. nothing he says today is going to make israel do anything, it will be based on the nuclear program. he likes to play with people so i think he'll have a little bit of fun. and i think you can expect some tough rhetoric. in previous years it has been so tough people walked out of the room. >> that's right.

getting a lot of attention. president obama and prime minister netanyahu attended the united nations general assembly in new york, but at different times. the white house insisted it was a scheduling issue, not a snub. no meetings, no handshakes. but today a follow-up phone call that a senior administration official told cnn lasted more than 20 minutes. in a statement released by the white house, the conversation included "a range of security issues," the president reaffirmed his commitment to israel security. and the two leaders were in full agreement on preventing iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. prime minister netanyahu has been pressuring the u.s. to lay down a so-called red line on iran that would prompt military action. at the u.n. he used a prop to drive home his point. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: while some have accused the prime minister of pressuring the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. p

now in favor of president obama. this is a state many people thought that could not happen in given especially the gay marriage debate, but these are the latest numbers we have tonight. obama is now leadinging in the latest polling from all nine battleground states. particularly a problem tonight is florida. the latest cbs poll shows obama ahead by nine points in florida. so, is this true? you may have heard about this. many on the right saying the polls are skewed. they're unfair. here is why republican strategist karl ro who knows polls and elections better than anyone says these polls can't possibly be right. >> think about this. romney and obama get each ughly e same pcentage the republicans and democrats as their ponent. that is to say they carry their base overwhelmingly. romney among independents is winning by three points, so if romney's winning the independents and republicans, do you think in a battleground state like florida, he's nine points down? the answer is no. >> okay. that math doesn't actually work out because according to the florida poll, those who say they're m

these two men. either mitt romney or barack obama will be the one to decide on the war or peace question. prime minister netanyahu seems to be betting on romney. romney has known him for 35 years. he visited him on the campaign trail in israel. and i even saw one of mitt romney's books on netanyahu's study shelf in jerusalem. he even appears in a pro romney ad in florida. >> the fact is, that every day that passes, iran gets closer and closer to nuclear bombs. >> right now, the candidates are duelling over how to handle the conflict. >> the president's decision not to meet with netanyahu, prime minister of israel when the prime minister is here is a mistake. >> so, you know, governor romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so. >> tonight, the israeli response to iran "outfront." earlier, i spoke with israel's council general in new york and asked him for his reaction to ahmadinejad's comments. >> well, i think it's the wrong framing to look at it as you know, iran versus israel. this is a much larger issue. it's the world, it's the west versus iran. i think t

. >> were you surprised or dismayed or both by president obama refusing to sit down with any world leaders this week? i was. i did think that was a missed opportunity. obviously he's concerned about the election. he's also our president. i think that just as he gets a little extra bang for the buck when he gives a speech opposed to romney giving it he has a responsibility to take this time, the u.n. general assembly once a year and meet a few more crucial leaders. i think that was unfortunate that he left the heavy lifting for hillary clinton. >> when i talked to mahmoud ahmadinejad he was keen to try to move on the game in the middle east by saying america's place is not to continue to get involved. you can already see he says a lot of difficulties are rising from intervention. let democracy, freedom, whatever you want to call it come organically through the people. very self serving to say this. the last thing he would allow in his own country. >> or syria. >> where he is almost certainly helping out his friend assad. >> i was amused in regards to syria, he said we are friends wi
